Portugal continues one of the top trends for the real estate market in 2021!
This year’s top of the rank is London, followed by Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam. With these 4 EU cities in the top 10 of investors' favourites, Germany should lead the recovery of investment in Europe.
According to an Investor Intentions Survey, 60% of European investors plan to invest more in real estate this year than last year, whereas in the UK, data shows that more than 80% want to invest more capital. Although the difference is evident in the various countries, almost 75% of investors also indicated that they intend to buy 10% or more this year.

Despite the slowdown in investments caused by the pandemic and consequent restrictions in the countries, there is still a high interest in the Portuguese real estate market. In the expectation that vaccination plans will remain within the defined timetable, it is predicted that in 2021 European investment volumes will increase by up to 5% compared to last year.
Commercial property was highlighted as investors’ favourite asset, despite the increase of remote working. 35% of them showed a positive market feeling towards the future of these assets, namely those of higher quality.
At the top of the list, the housing market also holds up 24% of investment intentions, followed by the industrial and logistics sectors, with 22%. Prices in these sectors are expected to show greater resilience, as opposed to hotels, retail, or lower quality offices.
